BUNK 9’S GUIDE TO GROWING UP
Secrets, Tips, and Expert Advice on the Good, the Bad, and the Awkward
By Adah Nuchi. Illustrated by Meg Hunt. Like having a best friend or older sister share everything there is to know about puberty, this fact-filled, lighthearted guide serves as an instruction manual, "handwritten" by the counselors-in-training at fictional Camp Silver Moon. Accompanied by clever doodles and drawings, callouts, and margin comments that make the subject easily approachable, entertaining, and informative, topics range from periods, bras, hormones, and crushes to nutrition, exercise, sleep, and first kisses. Among the sections: "The Top Three Tips for the Best Puberty Ever," "A Field Guide to Breasts," "’No Smell’ Basics," and "Rocking Your First Period." Grades 3–7. Workman. 189 pages. ©2017.
